I love this die from  Simon Says Stamp  so much that I came up with another way of using it. s  

I had made a few versions of it (see here and here). 
just a note t osay hello

 Since it is the new year, I wanted to create something fresh and for all occasion. Hello cards are my favorite kind of cards to send. I started out with stamping the INSIDE of the collage. And with the die, I can "guess-timate" how it look once you place the die over the flowers. I love how this turned out. It looks intricate yet, it is so easy to create!

just a note

I think the key is to stamp as many colors as you can, so the colors really pop against the collage. I think I used at least 10 colors of inks. what do you think?

 I hope this card brightens your winery day!
Thanks for stopping by!
